Trump Makes More Appointments; Romney Mentioned as Possible Secretary of State

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has announced more appointments to his administration following the naming of Reince Priebus as his chief of staff.

Senator Jeff Sessions, a close aide of Trump, was named the attorney general.

Former head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency Mike Flynn was tapped as Trump's national security adviser while Representative Mike Pompeo was chosen to lead the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA).

Flynn, in particular, who is a retired three-star general known for his hardline views on diplomacy and security matters, is said to be especially trusted by the president-elect.

Attention has also been drawn to former presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a possible nominee for secretary of state. The former Massachusetts governor had previously blasted Trump, saying he has "neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president."

U.S. media say that the president-elect and his earlier foe will meet Sunday to discuss Romney's possible role in Trump's Cabinet.

Experts believe that appointing Romney can greatly help unify the Republican Party and facilitate the operation of the new administration.
